Dear Mom and Dad

Just a quick hello before the holidays By DMN Staff Writer
Dear Mom and Dad:

Wow, look what I found! I went on the Web and I see that there are tons of projectors available at really affordable prices this year! Right before the holidays! Not that Im directly asking for a projector for Christmas, uh uh. Would I do that? I am doing market research for my Website and I just thought you might find the results interesting. Really. Honest. Thats all this is.


You see, a year ago, a lot of folks believed that once projectors broke the $2,000 mark, consumers would buy projectors. Now that theyve broken that barrier, and then some, I suspect were in an early adopter phase. Most consumers go right for the TV set but corporate folks who use projectors at work realize a projector at home is a better alternative in many cases. Once those folks have movie parties, their friends will see how very cool a projector is at home and theyll become the next buyers. Like my friend Dave had a movie party last month. Like I drooled over his home theater system and projector. But I digress.

Here is what I found:

At www.OfficeDepot.com, one of my favorite stores and to whom Im indebted, literally?:

3M MP7640i Personal Projector
3M MP7720 Personal Projector
3M MP7730AV Personal Multimedia Projector
3M MP8747 Multimedia Projector
3M MP8755 Projector
3M Personal Multimedia Projectors
Epson PowerLite 50C Projector
Epson Powerlite 70c Multimedia Projector
ViewSonic PJ500 Mobile Projector
ViewSonic PJ875 Litebird Projector

Prices ranged from $1,999 for an Epson to $4,899 for a 3M

At www.Microcenter.com, where I bought my Sony Vaio desktop last year:

Epson Powerlite 50c LCD SVGA Projector
ViewSonic PJ875 SVGA LiteBird Projector
ViewSonic PJ1075 DLP XGA Ultra-Lite Projector
Epson PowerLite 70c LCD Projector
Infocus LP280 LCD SVGA Projector

Again, $1,999 for the Epson, up to $3,399 for a ViewSonic
